He lived on his own just up until he turned 100, and still has a great sense of humor - and LOVES his great grandson :)
We have been trying for the past 3 years to get him on the Today show - the segment where Willard Scott wishes the centinarians (sp) a Happy Bday... MARK YOUR CALENDARS... it is FINALLY happening this year! He will be on next Wednesday July 15th between 8:30 and 9:30! It only took 102 years for his National Television debut, and he is SO excited!
Menslage East sent GGpa this awesome edible arrangement - can you see the "102" made out of pineapple?? so cool!
His bday spread - including some "bubbly"! Arlene did a great job picking out a delicious chocolate cake that we all enjoyed. Mmmmm
